Your child can’t get COVID-19 from any COVID-19 vaccine, including the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Nearly 1 million adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as of June 5. However, vaccines for children under 12 are not expected to be available until the fall at the very earliest.

The Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines are mRNA vaccines that do not contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 and therefore, cannot give someone COVID-19. Additionally, mRNA vaccines do not interact with a person’s DNA or cause genetic changes because the mRNA does not enter the nucleus of the cell, which is where our DNA is kept.
